Thanks for the links pt! :)
Added!

this thread will be very usefull as soon as it is finished ;)
This thread will be useful forever I think.
Of course I check sometimes some links if they are broken and edit the posts if it is necessary.
If someone knows some modding sites then he/she should post info!

EDIT--- NM this post, i didn't see that is just OC apps you want to make a list of...

Here are a couple on my list...

MHDD - http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2005.10.02-MHDD/

MHDD is the most popular freeware program for low-level HDD diagnostics.

MHDD supports these interfaces: IDE, Serial ATA, SCSI. Also there is a possibility to access an USB storage, there are drivers for emulation (USB->SCSI).

This software can make precise diagnostic of the mechanical part of a drive, view SMART attributes, perform Low-level format, bad sector repair, different tests and tens of other functions.

---------------

HDDScan - http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.01.22-HDDScan/

HDDScan is a freeware program for low-level HDD diagnostics.

HDDScan supports IDE/SATA/SCSI hard disk drives, RAID arrays, external USB/Firewire hard disks, flash cards.

The program can scan the surface, view SMART attributes, adjust AAM, APM (Power Management), etc.

---------------

Magic Boot Disk v2.0 © HDDGURU - http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/

This MS-DOS boot disk contains the following:

* Based on Windows 98 Second Edition boot disk
* Drivers for IDE and SATA CDROM
* Fixed FDISK.EXE: Support of hard disk drives bigger than 137 GB
* Patched FORMAT.COM:
o Option /Q (QuickFormat) now can be used to format floppies and hard disks quickly even if they're never been formatted before
o MS-DOS version check has been removed
* SmartDrive (SMARTDRV.EXE) and other basic MS-DOS stuff such as SYS, ATTRIB, DELTREE, LABEL, MEM, MOVE.
* MHDD 4.6 with SCSI/ASPI and ATAPI support and Primary IDE enabled
* USB Mass Storage support drivers for MHDD

---------------

7z - http://www.7-zip.org/

Another compession program, also used in benches.

If you want file recovery, go with Active@ File Recovery v7.1 for windows...i am able to pull more data out of that, than what ontrack software has to offer...almost 2-3 times more!

The program is already in the list.
Urlyin and ktr thanks for posting here but these programs are not for overclocking they are general programs.
Therefore I have not added in the list. IMHO we have to create a different thread for general software list or the Admins should rename the thread.
:confused: i don't see orthos sp2004 on the list

the normal StessPrime2004 is there

orthos is a better version though, it auto detects multi-core systems and runs two instances in the same window
